In the 27th round of Premier League this season, Liverpool lost to Bournemouth 0-1, missed the home and away double play, and lost to this newly promoted horse again after seven years. In addition, Liverpool still scored 42 points, missed the opportunity to overtake Tottenham Hotspur and rose to fourth place, and missed the opportunity to return to the Champions League.
At the beginning of the season, Bournemouth suffered three consecutive defeats against Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool, and failed to score a goal. Now it has entered the second round. The team has already defeated Manchester City 1-4 and was defeated by Arsenal 2-3. Now it is eager to end the losing streak in the face of Liverpool and avoid repeating the score of defeating Liverpool 0-9 in the first round.
Based on the last round of Liverpool’s 7-0 home victory over Manchester United, many fans are worried that Bournemouth will repeat the mistakes of the Red Devils and suffer a big defeat.
As a result, Liverpool capsized in the away game. In the first half, Gakpo’s goal was blown. In the second half, Salah missed the penalty, and finally lost 0-1. The previous record of seven consecutive victories in Bournemouth was ended, and it was also lost to this newly promoted team again after seven years.
In addition, this loss prevented Liverpool from becoming the fourth team to win 250 away games in the Premier League. The first three teams were Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.
Salah, who was crowned Liverpool’s Premier League scorer in the last round, unexpectedly kicked a penalty against Bournemouth this round. It was also the first time in the Premier League that he missed the goal and could not help the team equalize the score.
According to statistics, this game was Salah’s 200th start in the Premier League, including 6 Chelsea and 194 Liverpool games, which eventually turned into a "sad mileage" game.
